COVID-19 Testing FAQs
Does DocReady provide testing for COVID-19?
Yes. DocReady is partnering with Quest Diagnostics labs in processing the complex COVID-19 testing during this public health emergency.
For the diagnosis of an active COVID-19 infection, DocReady doctors can place an order for an at-home collection kit to be delivered to you or can create a lab order so that you can make an appointment at a drive-thru collection site.
Another option is for your Docready doctor to place a lab order for you to have a test sample collected at your preferred local testing center.
Does DocReady provide testing for COVID-19 antibodies?
Yes. For COVID-19 antibody testing, you can make an appointment with a DocReady doctor to discuss your COVID symptom and testing history and your doctor will determine your testing eligibility and options.
In order to be eligible for COVID antibody testing, you must have been symptom-free for at least 10 days.
How do I know if I have COVID-19?
If you suspect you may have COVID-19, schedule an appointment with DocReady immediately for guidance. Your DocReady doctor can review your symptoms to determine what testing is appropriate. If COVID-19 diagnostic testing for active infection makes sense for you, your doctor will direct you where to get tested. Diagnostic testing includes collecting your samples (for example, nose or throat swab).
How do I know if I’m recovered from COVID-19?
You are considered “recovered” from COVID-19 and no longer infectious if it has been at least 10 days from the start of your first symptoms, and at least 24 hours without a fever, and all other symptoms have improved. Additionally, an antibody test may be able to detect if you have previously had an infection and already recovered—even if you never experienced symptoms.
How do I get tested for COVID-19?
If you suspect you may have COVID-19, schedule an appointment with DocReady immediately for guidance. Your DocReady doctor can review your symptoms to determine what appropriate testing is needed. If COVID-19 testing makes sense for you, your doctor will direct you where to get tested.
